I am not sure where is this message logged, but definitely not in yum.log, as I  
didn't find it there later on when I looked up again. I also don't know where 
those kernel warnings were logged, if at all... :-)

But anyway, there is no need to attach yourself to that bugzilla, just read it 
to understand what is happening. There is a particular link to the 
codemonkeys.org website with more clearer explanation. In a nutshell, it's 
just deltarpm and kernel rpm confusing each other about how big the 
initramfs.img file should be. And it just so happens that those firmware modules 
happen to reside in that file, so during the kernel installation you get the 
warning that they might get missing. But this never happens, because the 
kernel has those modules already, and just needs to recreate the initramfs, 
which happens automatically.

So nothing to worry about. ;-)

Best, :-)
